If you truly have a parasite problem, a herbal cleanse is definitely good for you given there is consistent flushing out during the cleanse. I think that for people who do not have multiple daily bowel movements for myself, these herbs can definitely cause problems. Of course I cannot categorically prove to others that this caused my ALS but I can to myself: the onset and progression of my condition is consistent with a trigger in March of this year, where the only foreign thing I had done to my body in the past few years was this cleanse in that month.
I'm not proud to be doing this, but when you are in my situation and staring at the end in a pretty grim way, all because of one error, then you tend to be quite desperate to vent, to something... if ALS were an illness with a glimmer of hope, I would definitely be concentrating on healing myself, that's for sure.
I will take your advice and not be posting again here, as I do not really have anything more positive to add. Unforunately, when dealing with health issues, things aren't always positive.
I know I am the extremest case of a negative effect that anyone will ever have with hw, with a combination of naivity, and bad luck being the cause. I gambled on my health thinking it was a safe bet and ended up losing big.
I feel for your friend who was hit by a bus, every family has their tradgedies, it's hard you did not get to say goodbye - but on the positive they died without suffering and of thinking of the pending inevitable every minute and knowing what and who they would leave behind.
